The Parsons Glory

Original tie by Phil Parsons

Hook- 2-10
Tag- gold
Tail- golden pheasant tippits

This is the most popular fly and one of the oldest of this style if compared to a fingerling trout it is very similar in colour (with good honey grizzey), In sizes 1/0, #2 it is used as a salmon/Rainbow fly and in the smaller sizes a genral fly #10 being the most popular.

The tie that is in use today is the same but with the dyed sub for honey grizzey, no tail, topping, or cheeks (if the tail is included it is red or orange) and yellow chenille.
